January 2019
  • The Focused Ultrasound Foundation highlighted the collaborative project co-lead by Dr. Fabiilli and Dr. Renny Franceschi on using high intensity focused ultrasound to modulate gene expression.  

December 2018
  • Congratulations to Dr. Alexander Moncion on the acceptance of his paper entitled "Spatiotemporally-controlled transgene expression in hydroxyapatite-fibrin composite scaffolds using high intensity focused ultrasound" to the journal Biomaterials. This paper was a collaboration between Dr. Fabiilli and Dr. Renny Franceschi, at the University of Michigan, and Dr. Nuria Vilaboa and Dr. Francisco Martin-Saavedra from Hospital Universitario La Paz-IdiPAZ and CIBER-BBN in Madrid, Spain.       

October 2018
  • Dr. Xiaoxiao Dong and Dr. Fabiilli attended the 6th International Symposium on Focused Ultrasound in Reston, VA. Dr. Dong presented a poster titled "Control of endothelial network formation via the ultrasound-triggered delivery of basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) from acoustically-responsive scaffolds". Dr. Fabiilli gave a talk titled " Non-invasive, spatiotemporal control of transgene expression using hyperthermia generated by high intensity focused ultrasound".

September 2018
  • Dr. Fabiilli gave an invited talk titled "Acoustically-Responsive Scaffolds: A Method for Spatial/Temporal Control in Tissue Engineering" at the Advances in Contrast Ultrasound - International Bubble Conference in Chicago, IL.

August 2018
  • Dr. Mitra Aliabouzar joined the lab as a postdoctoral fellow.  Dr. Aliabouzar recently completed a PhD in mechanical engineering from George Washington University.  Her advisor was Dr. Kausik Sarkar.
  • Dr. Alexander Moncion's recently accepted publication entitled  "Sequential payload release from acoustically-responsive scaffolds using focused ultrasound" was highlighted on the Focused Ultrasound Foundation website.
